March 30, 1923 - April 14, 2020
On April 14, 2020, Angels came to get Mrs. Mary Leo Greenhaw Whisenant. She was born on March 30, 1923, to Joseph and Leo Wilson Greenhaw of Union Grove, AL. She married Roy Howard Whisenant on October 22, 1939. The couple had 3 children and lived most of their lives in Arab, AL. Mr. Whisenant died on Oct. 14, 1998. Mary faithfully attended First Baptist Church of Arab for over 50 years. She also enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, gardening and raising her two daughters and son. She loved caring for children and was employed by Great Day Kindergarten in Arab for over 30 years. She also devoted many hours to the nursery of the First Baptist Church. Many adults in Arab today fondly remember their kindergarten years with Miss Mary, the affectionate name by which she was known. Miss Mary was predeceased by her husband, her parents and two brothers Robert W. Greenhaw (Nova) and Joseph Glenn Greenhaw (Lu). She is survived by her children: Shirley Simchik (Paul) of Huntsville, Carol Solberger (Jack) of Mobile and Douglas Whisenant (Lynn) of Harvest; her grandchildren: Andy Simchik, Sara Hough, Carol Anne Solberger-Bush, Johnny Solberger, Christina Wright, Pamela Bailey, Daniel Whisenant; her great grandchildren: Ronin and Danica Carroll; a sister: Nancy Halloran (John) of Kingston, New Hampshire; sister in law: Lu Greenhaw of Union Grove and many cousins, nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to a charity of your choice in Mrs. Whisenant’s name. A Private Graveside Service will be conducted by Gober Funeral Chapel of Arab at the Arab Memorial Cemetery. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. Miss Mary will be greatly missed.
